Posted By Toyacoyah Brown July 30th, 2017 Last Updated on: July 30th, 2017

Curt Young is an award-winning artist from George Gordon's First Nations in Saskatchewan. He is also a part of the musical duo Young Medicine, who has performed across the globe in such places as China, Peru, New York, Hawaii, and many communities & schools across Turtle Island.

Young loves working with youth in the community because he grew up with a learning disability and believes that music, culture, and dance helped him get his education. “Be your own person and live in a positive way” is something he always tells the kids.

Here's a video from a recent school performance. Looks like the kids had a blast!

And here's a couple of rockin' tunes from Young Medicine for ya!
